Colin trained at Camberwell School of Art. He produces individual pieces of stoneware pottery fired in an electric kiln. These hand-thrown works are inspired by views of the ocean and coastal moorland of west Cornwall. Effects are built up with brushed-on coloured slips on the raw pot, followed by various dipped, inlaid and brushed-on oxides and glazes before the second firing. Sometimes more colours are added before a third firing. Every piece is uniquely individual and intrinsically a painting in the round.
